Can I install different versions of FileMaker on one PC

Post

I have a PC using Windows XP with an older version of FileMaker Pro...  v7

Can I install FileMaker Pro 10 on the same PC?

 

I would install them into their own respective directories. C:\program files\FMPro\v07 and C:\program files\FMPro\v10

What issues would I run into if I did?

 

What would happen to existing databases on the system?

If I only used v10 for new DB's, and v7 for the existing ones would that be OK?

 

What if I am sharing DB's, could I tell my PC to only use v7 for sharing for now? and then later use v10 after I'm able to get rid of v7?

 

Thanx for any help

Chris
